About Richard and Jackie Smith

Jackie and I grew up in the Pacific Northwest before settling in Lodi, California wine country in 1991. We enjoy Hawaii for the remarkable way the people, views and experiences completely dissolve all stresses for a true relaxing vacation experience.

Richard and Jackie Smith purchased this condo in 2008

Why Richard and Jackie Smith chose Wailuku

Ma'alaea Kai is an often undetected property in the central valley of Maui on the south coast. The property is maintained immaculately with arguably the nicest lawn on the island. The proximity to the swimming pool, barbeques in addition to being on the first floor which makes the large private lawn like your own backyard. Waking to the sun rising out the beach bedroom window directly over 10,023 foot Mt. Haleakala is one of the highlights of a trip to this property.

What makes this condo unique

If you are searching for the best all around experience Maui has to offer you will not be disappointed in this property at Ma'alaea. Being in a quiet area and the most central to all attractions and sites on Maui this condo will meet all of your getaway expectations.

A family vacation dream come true

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Jackie's home in paradise exceeded our expectations. My wife and I are familiar with the Maalaea Kai and have grown attached to the location and incredible ocean front views. For 2017, we planned a family vacation with our 4 girls so a two bedroom unit was a must. With two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, spacious kitchen, living and dining areas, this was perfect for our family of 6. The condo is very clean and modern with every convenience anyone could ask for.

Watch turtles play in the surf, relax by the pool or just lounge by the ocean - all on the property. A walk down the road opens to a sandy beach with surprisingly good snorkeling opportunities. Maalaea village with shops, great restaurants and the Maui Ocean Centre is a 5 minute walk away too. Located within an easy drive to Lahaina, Kahului and Kihei, I don't think there could be a better location on Maui.

Mahalo, Richard and Jackie. We are already thinking of our next visit to paradise!

Truly felt like home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad we chose to stay here vs a hotel. The condos were perfectly located on the island to enjoy many beaches, restaurants, attractions, etc. The condo faced the Ma'alaea harbor and we were welcomed by the sunrise every morning.

The unit is very well-kept, well-stocked, well ventilated, simply perfect.

I would highly recommend this unit. Thank you to the Smiths for offering your place for us to enjoy.

On our last day, we were lucky enough to watch some turtles swim close to the sea wall!

Ma’alaea Kai #110 ...two thumbs up!!!

  • 4 of 5

This is our 10th trip to Maui, it the first time we’ve not stayed in Kaanapali or Kapalua area. We loved it. Ma’alaea is a great central location with easy access to the Airport, Kihei and Lahaina. Walking distance to Beach Bums and a couple small groceries, so there is nearby conveniences. The guys got a pretty good package deal at Kahili Golf Course for the two weeks we were here. We had easy access to get upcountry for a day trip and shopping while they were golfing in Paia or over in Kihei.

This complex is quiet and they don’t like too much noise. This unit is perfectly situated on the first floor, right out the door with a short walk to the ocean to watch the turtles on the rocks, or just steps away to the heated pool. You also have great access to the two gas grills on property to prepare your dinner.

We had a great experience with the unit itself, everything you need is here. The microwave bit the dust, but Richard the owner was quick to replace. Definitely will consider a return visit in the future.

Amazing property that met all of our needs

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfectly situated with access to both a pool and the ocean within a few steps. The Smiths ensure that all of your needs are met. We really appreciated the leisure items - chairs, boogie boards, snorkels. In addition, the very well stocked pantry and cleaning supplies allowed us to feel truly at home. We had a trip the memories of which will last a lifetime.

Fabulous unit in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first time in Maui and we had a great time. I cannot say enough great things about Richard's condo...from location, cleanliness, convenience, it was all great. Richard's place was very close to the airport making it so convenient for us upon arrival. The condo is clean, modern, and spacious. The beds are large and you can easily fit 6 people in the room (2 per bed + 2 on sofa bed). We were very pleased by the cleanliness of the condo and felt at home. The condo building itself is waterfront and has a great pool and BBQ. There is a beach a short 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk away. The location of the condo is perfect as it was minutes away from our boat trip (literally next door-Pride of Maui, ziplining, Maui Zipline, and a short 15-20 minute drive away for Kihei and Lahaina which are great for shopping and restaurants. Thank you Richard for being such a great host!!
